is why did an ambassador have little or no real security in a place like libya on september 11th. >> that's a great question. who was in charge of security at the time when we knew that there were a number of attacks, a number of threats leading up to this incident. we knew they had drones in the sky watching ago live video feed as this battle unfolded for 7 to 8 hours. ty woods, of course you remember he was killed tragically in this attack, a navy seal who was killed, said when the bodies arrived back in the united states, hillary clinton looked right into his eyes and still was blaming it on that video. listen. >> well it, came out on the 12th, i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand she said to me: we are going to have the film maker arrested. >> do you i think this may be te single most shocking thing in the benghazi story. secretary of state doesn't get to
